Dear All,


First let me thank everyone who responded to my threads.;)

It’s because of you, that I have almost reached Home Cinema Heaven now.

However I still have one remaining question.

Whenever I watch a 1.85:1 dvd, the picture is just superb!

But when I watch a 2.35:1 dvd, the pic. Quality is not seemingly not as great as with a ratio aspect of 1.85:1.

Yesterday I watched Vertical Limit(1.85) and it looked perfect.

After that I watched Episode 1 and I couldn’t help but being dissapointed by the Picture quality.

Does anyone know if there’s a reason for this?

This also happens with other 2.35:1 dvd's.

I am using the following configuration:

XP

WinDvD

Powerstrip

Panasonic ae-100

Ati 7500 All-In-Wonder

Terratec soundcard

I would appreciate any help from you guys.


Regards,


Fred

In the case of Vertical Limit vs TPM it is easy. Vertical Limit is a suburb transfer (especially the SB version) with almost no EE. On the other hand TPM is overloaded with edge enhancement. In general terms 2.35 films have more EE than 1.85. If you want to test to see if this is what you are seeing watch one of the following 2.35 films with almost no EE: Moulin Rouge, Fast and the Furious, U571, Pitch Black, The Fifth Element (SB), Spy Games, Driven, or Vanilla Sky. Then compare this to a 1.85 film with lots of EE like: Jurassic Park, Evolution, Cast Away, Paulie, or Presumed Innocent (one of the worst EE's but not 16x9 enhanced). For a great understanding of EE go to Bjoern's Place's Ultimate Guide to EE.
